OK so I have set up a 75 gallon tank about two months ago and am starting to plan my lighting setup for when I get corals. I am interested in possibly acquiring a candy cane or trumpet coral, a button polyp, and a shroom in the future and was wondering about the lighting neccessity these corals would have.
I found a few interesting lighting setups that I am considering. On the PC
side I like the 48" Coralife Lunar Aqualight Moonlight Hood 4 x 65 watt power. It has (2)10K and (2) Actinic 65 Watt Power Compact bulbs with (3) Blue Moon Glow LED
On the MH
side I like the Hamilton 48" 2 -250 watt 10K Metal Halide bulbs 2-110 watt VHO
actincs, 2 - 4" fans setup.
I am wondering if the corals would thrive with the PC
setup or if the MH
setup is worth the $400 extra it costs? Any information on this topic would be greatly appreciated. TIA
